KakaoTalk Evernote, South Korean app, KakaoTalk IM

Social gaming isn’t the only thing up Kakao‘s sleeves today. The company just announced a partnership for Kakao users in the Asian market with note-taking and reminder app Evernote, which hopes to expand its presence in the Asian market.

With Evernote, KakaoTalk users will be able to view notes and other content within the chat windows of the application conversations, allowing users to share everything from images, links and entire messages to the Evernote app.

“Evernote’s products have traditionally been quite introverted; keeping your own memories and information for your own use,” Evernote CEO Phil Libin explains. “But there’s a big demand for improving our sharing and collaboration capabilities, and we’re always looking for the most innovative ways to do that. With Kakao Talk, people will be able to share their memories more easily, as well as keep the conversations that are important to them. There is a lot we can learn about sharing and communication by working with Kakao.”

What could be better than making a social messaging app even more social? There is no specific timeline for the rollout, but both sides are already working on the first implementation which will initially go live to South Korean users exclusively. Which is to be expected; the majority of KakaoTalk’s users are located within its native country.
